Eat Pray Love movie no longer R-rated

Moms, relax. You can now take your daughters to "Eat Pray Love," the movie adaptation of the Elizabeth Gilbert's smash novel.

The new feature starring Julia Roberts, which is scheduled for an Aug. 13 release, was originally given an R rating by the Classification and Ratings Administration. But director Ryan Murphy and producer Dede Gardner appealed, according to the Hollywood Reporter.

The tactic worked, and the movie has now been classified with a less restrictive PG-13 rating for "brief strong language, some sexual references and male rear nudity."

That sounds appropriate -- the rating, not the male rear nudity. As I recall the book was long on desire and short on sex, and I can't imagine that Roberts would allow the movie to be tarted up.
